Coba Ritsema was one of the “Amsterdamse Joffers“, a group of women painters who met at the Acadamy of Arts in Amsterdam. They are not a movement, they did not agree on style or anything, they were just a group of friends, assembling frequently for a cup of tea at the atelier of Therese Schwartze. This is a small painting of Coba’s. I bought it at an auction two weeks ago. For just €100.
